Thanksgiving

thanks a lot
for stuffing me,
said the turkey
to the cook

I think
it gave me the shits tho,
am I now
of the hook?

Baby bunny

new to life
fearless
yet frail
waggling
it’s tiny tail
freshly furred
brown ha(i)re(d)
and slightly scared
a baby bunny hops
on my grass
mixed with weeds
en masse
as birds sing
and bugs bug
the bunny
freezes
whilst an ugly orange cat
goes into stalking mode

I have to break up the party…

Danny the Dalmatian

you’ve spotted me
said Danny
to the overlooking tree

you look
like you are thirsty
so I will kindly wet on thee

I also left you
a fragrance
to freshen up thy bark

so you smell nice
alone
in this landscape oh so stark

No fly zone

a fly
couldn’t fly
in a zone
of his own
so he disguised himself
as a book
but his cover was blown

Stride

regarding my eventful stride
in the garden of perception
I ponder
and wonder
how I ended up
down yonder
believing fate
would caress my inner
conspicuous alteration
of thoughtful contemplation
that opens
and shuts shutters
of my ever vivid imagination

To the forest

rising damp
steam and smoke
misty sunlight
like a faded lamp
gazing upon dead wood
covering moist soil
the earth breathing
through snugly moss
trees waving
wandering gust

I should go to the forest
I really must…

Bipolar

2 gay bears
were dancing on ice,
playing a game,
rolling the dice

The ice began to melt
as the heat was on;
all the love they had felt
had sunk and was gone…

Gene pool

mixed by
only a few
we are created
as off spring
amongst ourselves
in a small pool
of genes
by human
intervention
making us weak
not to mention
they did it
with every intention
just for money
not very funny

Her butterflies

the fresh smell
of springs’ air
rosy cheeks
her skin so fair
she seeks
a naughty boy
who wants him
for her butterflies
and a bit of joy

all the while
her precious
innocent smile
and insecure
female stance
wants to control
her butterflies
before they start
to dance…

More flies

more flies
fly in
than they do out

they must like head butting windows
what’s that
all about?

Magpie

your screechy
raspy chatter
wakes me up
with querulous
clatter

harsh
shrieking
blare
I hear your racket
everywhere

outcry
rebel yell
before dawn
too early
false alarm

raucous piercing
repeatedly
to distraction
I shout BUGGAR OFF!
but get no reaction

Harvey the Hog 🐷 and Jeffrey the Jackal 🦊

Harvey the Hog
and Jeffrey the Jackal
were looking for femmes
to put in a shackle

lured by fame
they tricked them with tricks
demanding indecent proposals
to do with their pricks

the molested femmes
took the animals to court
ensuring their stay
in a restrained resort

Jeffrey got hanged
by petrified peers
leaving hog Harvey crippled
by shame and fears

Catwalk

strutting
his stuff
using his tail
for balance
the cat walks
his daily trail
in a coat
of fur
feeling contented
murmuring
an occasional purrrrrrr

Corvus Corax

black raven
sitting on a fence
feeling blue
don’t know what to do

waiting for death
to come to his gate
was it eyes of a human
he recently ate?

looking at me
if I were its prey
too big to handle?
maybe some day…

Traces

I see
miserable faces
in different places,
all looking unhappy,
in their eyes,
despairing traces

traces of sadness,
remorse
and pain;
will they ever
be jolly
and smile again?

Clair Voyant

Clair Voyant
was a psychic
who had a donkey
for a sidekick
and a monkey
that was cheeky

she predicted
all the noise
they made
would make
her floor sound squeaky

The fly and the vandal

the fly was crying
as he knew it was dying
behind glass it was stuck
sheer out of luck

caught in a greenhouse
didn’t know what to do
he just had his dinner
after feasting on poo

the heat drove him mad
made him tired and sad
head butting the pane
messed up his brain

there was no exit
that he could see
till a stone broke the glass
and he was set free

delighted and relieved
the fly flew away
grateful to the vandal
who tried to hit him that day

3 blind mice

three blind mice
were eating stir fried rice
after they had dinner
they also wanted ice

but as they couldn’t see
they asked the cat to get it
yet the cat ate them instead
after he said: forget it!

Woof woof

every Sunday
a dog barks
nervously
near the store
she heard it all
too often
a thousand times
before

fed up
of waiting
for the return
of its boss
Jan went out
and shot it
leaving a note:
I’m sorry for your loss

Hair

hair hair
everywhere
here and there
for you to stare

even on my warts
2 pair
grizzly to bear
I shall bare

unaware
where I can’t see
also many more
must be

unwanted patches
black
thick and coarse
just like a horse

unjust in proportions
in the wrong places
no wonder all the
funny faces

hair hair
anywhere
lots to see
I’ll shed ‘n share

Drawn by light

drawn
to the darkness of night
it was redirected
by first light
and the fading moon
sketching
a pretty picture
the mixture
of faded shadows
and songs
of morning sparrows

alive
this live blinding spectacle
recurring
with precious innocence
awoke
on a spring dawn
rising
on shores
of hopeful new starts
passing slowly
as it departs…

Gene pool

mixed by
only a few
we’re created
as off spring
amongst ourselves
in a small pool
of genes
by human
intervention
making us weak
not very funny
not to mention
they did it
just for money
with every intention

Empididae

dancing flies
do their loopies
under blue sky
these twirly groupies

they make my day
when they wander
squander
meander

round and round
they dance to light
these happy creatures
make my night

Not his vamp

“I think I’m in love”
the blind man thought
not knowing what to do
yet he kissed the hairy gal
before she uttered mooo!

he stepped into her homemade pie
which lay there warm and damp
barefooted came
to realise
the cow was not his vamp

Beef

I ain’t got
no beef
with you
said the cow
to the butcher
so chop chop
Go!
and leave me
now
and perhaps
someday
I shall
forgive you
somehow

Swamp monster

the greedy nasty wife
did nothing
in the house
except
getting up to eat
and shouting at her spouse

her fragile man
came home hungry
after working hard and late
noticed
all the food had gone
that his Ethel ate

had him run out
to the store
being ordered
to get more
called her a swamp monster
whilst walking out the door

when he came back
he was upset
not knowing what to do
but then he thought
you know what
I’ll take her to the zoo

My fish

my fish
wag their tails
elegantly
in curvy trails

no apparent
straight path
unpredicted
enjoying their bath

up and down
they travel light
moving about
all day and night

Hot legs

damp
steamy
thighs
stand
firmly
on
a
misty
mellow
meadow
whilst
the big
orange sun
heats
the green
underneath
the mare
gazing
on
a frosty
autumn morn
after
a new sunrise
is born

Bloody weeds

bloody weeds
bloody weeds
they bloody bleed
like bloody blood
between bloody tiles
it bloody feeds
on bleedin seeds
I’m on me knees

pulling
scraping
amongst bloody beezzz
summer’s breeze
sun and rain
I won’t complain
I’ll endure
the greens
the bloody pain

Alfresco

the butterflies dance
with elegant swerve
carried by breeze
and dangerous curve

in my small garden
they’ve come alive
gliding on wind
makes them revive

cruising through air
i watch them fly
floating with ease
as time passes by…
